Monaco Denver a Kimpton Hotel

Denver, Colorado

The hotel

Deep in downtown Denver, Hotel Monaco has got sports and sights, bars and boutiques, and eateries and entertainment in every direction. Transformed from two historic buildings into an up-to-the-minute urban pad, it promises those mod-cons and little indulgences that make a city break special. Each night, they lay on a complimentary wine reception and, before bed, there’s a ‘nightcap pairing’ waiting – perhaps port with a sweet treat? If that sounds a bit naughty, you can always atone at the complimentary 24-hour fitness centre. You might only be a walk from the restaurants of Victorian-era Larimer Square, and brew bars, clubs and dining of the LoDo district, but there’s dinner on your doorstep – at the hotel’s much-written about Denver dining spot Panzamo, featuring north Italian cuisine.

I stayed for 5 nights and really liked the hotel. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The room was great, comfortable bed and a really nice shower. It had a lot of outlets and charging ports. Pretty nice location too.

I’ve been meaning to write this review for over a year. What happened there still truly haunts me and caused me some emotional turmoil. I stayed there in the middle of a move and left personal belongings with valet/baggage storage due to last minute flight snafu. I checked with front desk saying I wasn’t sure when I’d be back but that I would grab them as soon as I came back which would likely be in a month or so. They said totally fine. Circumstances prevented me from coming back for several months but I called twice and they said it was all good. When I called to say I was coming back to get my things 2 months after my last call in which they had said just come when you can (and gave me NO deadline) they couldn’t find them then said they got rid of them! NOBODY called me! My phone number was written in Black sharpie in HUGE font on 2 of the bags along with my name. my belongings consisted of BRAND NEW ski helmet, brand new ski goggles, very nice powder skis (in a nice ski bag WITH MY PHONE NUMBER IN HUGE FONT ON OUTSIDE), very nice ski boots (in a nice boot bag WITH MY PHONE NUMBER IN HUGE FONT ON OUTSIDE and my helmet, goggles in same bag), ski clothing, and a box of hugely sentimental belongings from my move (family pictures, documents, etc). Again, my phone number was written in huge letters on both the ski bag and the boot bag and the box. No effort whatsoever to contact me. As if they had called I would have had had a local friend pick up ASAP. Clearly an employee took the skis/boots or sold them. When I called to say I was getting them they were super vague about what happened but said they did remember the stuff and said someone took them away. Sure policy on tag says not liable but this is robbery by employees in a locked closet and wrong and they shouldn’t have told me on phone not to worry about not picking it up. More importantly, be a decent human and at least make a phone call, some effort when the phone number is screaming to you, before taking them or getting rid of them. This wasn’t just a suitcase or a bag that was a bother to them. This was nice belongings that clearly someone wanted, otherwise they would have at least CALLED ME before taking them even if it's policy. They know given the fact that there was a phone number someone would have come for them. Not to mention if they had just checked with the front desk. But the fact that my contact info was LARGE on every single item means there is ZERO excuse. I cried when I found out and could not believe their lack of care or apology about the situation. This was at LEAST $3.5K worth of belongings PLUS the box of truly irreplaceable family belongings on top of that. They offered NO accommodation whatsoever. Truly abhorrent inexcusable and incredibly sketchy. No integrity. Still in shock. Read less

We stayed here for one night with our dog while on a longer road trip. This is a lovely hotel! In part because of my IHG status we were upgraded to a suite. The room was fantastic. It was clean, comfortable, and had nice views of our street in downtown Denver. There is a nice green area about 1 1/2 blocks away to walk dogs...very convenient. We… Read more

It was clean, comfortable, and had nice views of our street in downtown Denver. There is a nice green area about 1 1/2 blocks away to walk dogs...very convenient. We wished that we could stay longer to further explore Denver's vibrant downtown area and to enjoy our hotel stay. I highly recommend this Hotel Kimpton Monaco. Read less

This hotel is phenomenal. I will forever recommend for families, especially because it is pet friendly! The SPA rooms with the soaking tubs are great, large spacious bathrooms and comfy pillows. The lobby is also very cute. We were introduced to the General Manager and treated with care and respect. Our Bernese Mountain puppy gets very hot so the staff brought him a box fan for the room so he could sleep comfortably. They even gave him a little gift when we checked out. Can’t wait to return! Again, the GM was so kind and truly cared about the guests and the state of the hotel. I saw him working and even assisting front desk and maintenance staff. That’s dedication and leadership imo.
